Please disregard the part of the previous message I just sent about contacting me on Daniel Hoadley's memorial. I have deleted it. I just found your memorial for him in the Congregational Church Cemetery. Use the one for Mary Robinson - # 160290939.

Thank you for all the work you have done in New Haven County. We are probably related as we have some of the same ancestors.

Riverside Cemetery, Guilford, CT
Hi Jan,
Are you familiar with the above cemetery? I can't find anything relevant to its existence in anything about Guilford other than on Find A Grave. Since you have taken so many photos of cemeteries and tombstones around Guilford, I thought you could perhaps tell me if it ever existed. Please send me a message on Find A Grave Memorial# 171761721, memorial for Daniel Hoadley. I don't put contact info on Find A Grave anymore due to some of the nasty mail I have received.

Close to Wallingford?
Hello Jan,

Do you live in proximity to Wallingford? I was there two weeks ago, on a genealogy tour of New England. My Allen's/Alling's are from New Haven, but primarily, Wallingford. When I visited Center Street Cemetery, it was only 2 pm in the afternoon on a Thursday and no one was in the office. I knew that my Allen and Mattoon ancestors were bureid there, but I didn't know where. I found John and Philip Mattoon (late 1600's/early 1700's burials), and several Allen's, but not specifically my Allen ancestors. My 2nd and 3rd great-grandfather's were both Alfred Allen's, and I am certain they are buried in Center Street Cemetery. Any information you can impart would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Deming Grave Monuments
I believe the grave monuments you have for Philip Deming Monument # 24865119 belong to Philip Henry Deming Monument # 17978191. You have to look very closely. Philip Henry Deming was 27 when he died.
Philip Deming was 40.

RE: Safford photos
No problem!

I went on a walking tour at this graveyard today, a historian/author gave a talk on the stone carver Bartlett Adams and his shop, he featured these stones in the talk as being from one of Bartlett Adams students. As we were listening we realized that these were two of the photo requests we had seen for this graveyard, it was a happy coincidence :)

Jonathan Foote 1737-1801
There are 2 memorials for this ancestor of mine, yours = 18309886 and the other is 30599420. Have used the edit tab to link him to his father & wife, have emailed the other contributor. As I don't know how to merge (or if it is possible) duplicate memorials for the same person, I thought I'd let you two know.
Thank you so much for the information you have on Find A Grave!!!
From California to you
Happy Hunting!

Ledyard/Colonel Ledyard Cemeteries
What is the difference between Ledyard Cemetery in Ledyard, New London Co., CT, and Colonel Ledyard Cemetery in Groton, NL Co., CT? I show an individual buried in both cemeteries (actually, there are three memorials on this individual, and I would like to get the records straight). You are the photographer for the cover pic on both cemeteries, so thought maybe you could give me a good answer. Thanks so much.

What is this image:

You added it to Wheeler Cable's memorial but I'm not sure if it is actually located where he is buried or a picture of a located memorial somewhere else. It looks like a stone for his military unit.

thank you.

#21317361 Abby Peet

Thank you so much for all the work you've done in Findagrave particularly in my Peet family.

I think I've found an error in the entry for Abby (Alby) Peet #21317361.

You have him buried in Old Cemetery of Huntington when I believe he is buried in Saint Paul's Cemetery. Volume 44, Page 409-9 has him buried at St. Pauls next to his wife Caroline.

The possible explanation is that the Old Cemetery of Huntington is, in fact, the new name of St. Paul's.

Please let me know your thoughts on resolution,

Bryan Healy
Sisters of St. Joseph
Hi Jan:

I am going to be submitting edits for the sisters in the cemetery in West Hartford to have the correct name format. Per F-A-G, the last name should be listed as "Unknown" if the stone only lists their religious name:

John Willimason (Memorial# 19561789)
John Williamson is my 2nd Great Grandfather. You have a memorial of him at the Center Street Cemetery in Wallingford, CT. I have visited this cemetery before and was not able to find his grave or the graves of his two children, George Browne Williamson,1860-1866(Memorial# 19561801) and Walter Elisha Whittelsay Williamson, 1869-1876 (Memorial# 19561793). You have added these to Find a Grave on May 28, 2007. I know you have done many of these memorials, but would you be able to tell me how you know these three are buried in Center Street Cemetery and where in the cemetery? I will be back in Wallingford on Oct 2016 and hope to find these graves.
